My MUSEUM-piece is made of paper for writing letters, white paper with red stripes. Who writes letters anymore, who uses paper and pen? Is it too time demanding, too personal, too laborious?
Handwritten letter is a bit like handmade jewellery: parcel filled with time and human touch. Skill to make paper, skill to write and work with hands, longing for communication – they are all worth preserving.
